Set in Fresnaye, one of Cape Town’s most fashionable residential areas, 20 Avenue St Charles is primely positioned in one of the most expensive real estate areas along the Atlantic Seaboard. A single residential home was converted into a five story 5-unit luxury apartment block. Each unit is north facing with its own plunge pool. The units comprise of 3-bedrooms and 4-bathrooms ensuring enough space to make it feel like you are living in your own house.
LUXURY RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT
Although each unit was bought off plan which allowed the buyer to choose their own unique interior décor, the layout and finishes of each unit are all the same. The design was inspired by the stunning views of the sea and the mountain and of course Fresnaye’s spectacular sunsets, being ideally situated on the slopes of the mountain. Lots of windows and an open plan design ensure that there is always natural light flooding into the apartment and gives you a sense of being outdoors even when you are inside.
The team that executed this project were Nick Godwin (contractor, Phase Three Development Company), Flux (architectural design) and LSM Structures (Structural team). Each apartment was furnished with high-end finishes and details from only the best suppliers which included Assirelli Kitchens, Duravit (sanware), Oggie flooring, Marble Gallery tops and Smeg appliances.
Set on the slopes of Lion’s Head, between Sea Point and Bantry Bay, Fresnaye is one of the cities’ most fashionable residential areas and offers some of the finest holiday accommodation in Cape Town.
Fresnaye’s choice position on the mountain, the fact that it is sheltered from the notorious south-easterly and its easy access to Cape Town has produced some of the most expensive real estate along the Atlantic Seaboard. The streets here, as the suburb’s name indicates, are named after places in France and the magnificent views take in sweeping vistas of the Atlantic, Table Bay and Robben Island.
The suburb gives one easy access to the various museums, galleries and alleyways of the city centre and is just minutes from the V&A Waterfront.
The trendy Atlantic beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton are literally just up the road, within walking distance, and hanging out on one of Clifton’s four beaches, separated by granite boulders, or the long palm-lined stretch of sand that has made Camps Bay so popular amongst the jet set crowd, is a major draw card to the area.
Sunsets on this part of the peninsula are legendary and Fresnaye is no exception, particularly because of its situation on the slopes of a mountain. Fresnaye is close to Sea Point’s Main Road with an eclectic offering of shops, bars, clubs and restaurants that give it its own cosmopolitan flavour and Sea Point’s promenade is popular with locals, walkers, joggers and the pram brigade.
